PMI ethics Scordo

Tue Aug 25, 2015 6:03 am

Michael, in his review of estimated user story points for the upcoming iteration, finds that the project manager is artificially inflating the user story points to significantly lengthen the project period of performance in order to increase project revenue. It is a time and material contract and lengthening the period of performance would help boost Michael's parent company's profit. What should Michael do?

A. Confront the customer representative.
B. Confront Michael's project manager's boss.
C. Report the unethical and illegal conduct to the appropriate parties.
D. Confront his project manager.

My Answer was D but Scodo says it is option C, wih following explanation:
The PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct states that it is mandatory for a project manager to: inform yourself about and uphold the policies, rules, regulations, and laws that govern your work, including professional and volunteer activities; report unethical or illegal conduct to appropriate parties and, if necessary, to those affected by the misconduct; ensure that any allegations of misconduct or illegal activity are substantiated and file only complaints that are supported by facts; never take part or help someone else take part in illegal activities
Questions:
1. Why not option D first instead of C.

2. How many questions we should expect on Ethics in real exam.

Best,
Pankaj

you do not get any pure ethics questions in advance, if we talk agile... the estimation should be done by team and if someone is adding on top of it ... not right...

Rest difficult to pick from C and D, i will do D and understand first why he has done it ...and then C

Thanks Saket! And you were right Scordo has got lot of EVM questions but as a habit :) I am covering every test not focusing much on EVM (especially when calculation is required).
